The protests of AAP leaders are linked to CM Kejriwal’s alleged house arrest.

An old video of AAP's protest outside the Election Commission's office is shared with false context along with Kejriwal's alleged house arrest claim.

An old video of AAP's protest outside the Election Commission's office is shared with false context along with Kejriwal's alleged house arrest claim.The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Dec. 8, 2020, on Twitter, alleged that Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal was under house arrest following his visit to the farmers on Dec. 7. The party claimed that the police have not allowed the CM Kejriwal to move out of his residence ever since visiting farmers on the Singhu Border. However, countering the accusations, the Delhi Police has openly released a video of him roaming freely.

Along with the video, the DCP of North Delhi, on his social media, stated that the claim of CM Delhi being put on house arrest is incorrect. The CM exercises his right to free movement within the law of the land, he added. The Delhi Police also denied the charge, saying there is no restriction on his movement.

On Dec. 8, Manish Sisodia, the AAP leader had conducted a sit-in protest outside Kejriwal's residence. The video of this demonstration was uploaded by the news agency ANI. Amid this, an old video of AAP leaders like Raghav Chadha, Manish Sisodia, and others raising slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi is widely shared. The viral post on social media states that the video is of the AAP leaders in December 2020, protesting against Kejriwal's alleged house arrest; however, as per a reverse image search, we found that the video was from 2019 when AAP leaders protested outside the Election Commission's office in Delhi.
